Miss Honduras 2014, Maria Jose Alvarado, and her 23-year-old sister, Sofia Trinidad, were found in the village of Cablotales, near the River Aguagua. Police said Trinidad’s boyfriend, Plutarco Ruiz, admitted to gunning down his girlfriend and her teenage sister last Thursday after flying into a jealous rage because Trinidad was dancing with another man during a birthday party.
Ruiz and his alleged accomplice, Aris Maldonado, are being held by police. It’s unclear whether charges have been filed against them.
Alvarado was scheduled to fly to London on Sunday in advance of the Miss World Pageant, which is scheduled for December 14.
